Reviews - What do customers think about Analyzing Financial Statements The New York Times Pocket MBA Series 25 Keys to Understanding the Numbers?
Good for reference material Aug 12, 2008
Let me start by saying that I do not have a proper business education nor do I work in a business related field. Instead, I like to follow the stock market and I thought it would be great to understand Balance Sheets, Cash Flow statements, Income Statements, and Annual Reports so I can understand the market better.
This product was very good at explaining what all the different types of financial documents are and how they're used to assess a company's health. They discuss other topics such as basic accounting methods to expalin how the numbers are reported. At times, I felt the material did get a little too technical for me. However, I'm sure this is all basic Accounting 101 stuff for anyone with any formal education, so for them, it may be too basic. Also, I felt the narrator was a little drole and somewhat monotoned. I could only listen for about 30 minutes at a time before my attention drifted elsewhere.
I'm giving three stars because it does contain a lot of valuable information and would make a good reference tool for someone just starting out (like me) or for someone who needs refreshing.
